Adware, Spyware & Malware
With the ever increasing distribution of spyware, adware and other malicious sofware over the Internet, you may be concerned about the risks of using our website. In response, CodecPack.co has adopted a position of zero tolerance toward spyware, adware and malware. All the software available on our website is downloaded, installed and scanned for adware, spyware and viruses before being published.
We offer a very limited number of programs bundled with promotional software that doesn't contain any tracking components or backdoor advertising methods such as popups or malicious system modifications. These programs offer to install a third party browser toolbar sponsored by Yahoo!, Google, Ask.com or similar companies in order to generate revenue for the software developer. Users will always have the option to skip the toolbar installation and use the software without the optional toolbar.
If you choose to install the toolbar, you can always to decide to uninstall it later, without having to remove the software it came with. However, we have added a note to each listing that discloses the type of toolbar that is distributed by the software (see screenshot below).
The only toolbars we currently accept are:
When installing software always pay attention to the prompts it gives you. One of the options can be to install a browser toolbar. Make sure to opt-out correctly to prevent unwanted toolbars from being installed.
